SBI PO 2019 Overall and Sectional Cut off

In order to qualify the exam, the candidate must clear all cut-offs set by State Bank of India. There are various types of cut-off scores that the candidate must obtain to successfully crack the exam. Complete information about these parameters must be gathered.

The test paper is divided into several sections such as, Reasoning, Quantitative Aptitude, General Knowledge and English. SBI sets sectional cut-offs and candidate will have to clear each cut off to qualify the competitive test.

However, clearing only the sectional cut-offs will not be sufficient. The candidate must also manage to secure the overall cut-off declared by SBI. The SBI PO 2019 Overall Cut-off will be different from the sectional cut-offs. It will be determined after taking into consideration various factors and is usually higher than all sectional cut-offs. APPLY NOW CHECK ELIGIBILITY GET UPDATES

SBI PO 2019 Cut off Evaluation

In order to calculate the actual cut-off figure, the exam conducting authorities have to analyse several variables. Depending on the category of the candidate, the cut-off scores will be different. The factors influencing the cut-off marks are discussed below.

  • The number of candidates who appear for the exam will play a role in deciding the SBI PO 2019 Cut-Off marks. It will also depend on the number of available posts for recruitment purposes. The reservation applicable for different categories is also a relevant factor.
  • Question paper difficulty level must also be considered when calculating the cut-off score. It must be noted that the cut-off marks, once decided and announced by SBI, cannot be contested. The candidates will have no right to challenge the cut-off, in case they are dissatisfied with it.
  • The process of normalisation has been adopted for calculating final cut off score of SBI PO 2019. The procedure for calculating cut off score is given below. The recruitment of candidates is done strictly on the basis of SBI PO result cum merit list.
  • The SBI PO 2019 cut-off marks are normalised as the following formula:
  • Total Marks secured by last ranked selected candidate (Out 0f 100) = Written Test (Normalized to 75) + GD & Interview (Normalized to 25)

SBI PO 2019 Stages of Cut off

The SBI PO 2019 cut-off is declared separately for various stages of the exam. The first round of the selection process is the preliminary test. Cut-off marks are declared for this round which the candidates must obtain in order to move on to the next round.

The second round is the SBI PO Mains. Again, cut-offs are announced separately for this stage. To qualify the exam, the candidates must clear the cut-off score for mains as well. The final stage of the selection process is the personal interview round.

For PI round, cut-offs are announced independently. Based on who manages to secure the cut-off for this stage, candidates are finally recruited.
